From Citizen Tea

By the looks of it, we can only assume this to be a Fred Flintstone favourite, but know this – this tea is packed with benefits way beyond that of the Stone Age. Found extensively in natural medicine, ginseng has been used to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, reduce stress and promote relaxation. Mixed with licorice, this tea can be infused multiple times and is a unique blend to CitizenTea.

1.25tsp for 250mL water @ 90C, steeped three minutes.

Before I go any further, I must point out that Citizen Tea makes it very easy to try samples of their teas. My entire order was made of little sample packets, and I am delighted by that. It’s a very friendly way to try different offerings and means I don;t need to commit to 50 grams of something I really don’t like in the end. Citizen Tea bends over backwards to treat the customer well.

Dry leaf: green pebbles, with a strong scent of liquorice. I’m dubious here …

Wet leaf: very little unfurling of leaves, which bodes well for repeated infusions.

I avoid liquorice in teas and tisanes as I don’t care for it, and because I have blood pressure issues. I missed the mention of liquorice when I ordered this sample.

Once again, Citizen Tea show they understand blends. This is very balanced between ginseng and liquorice, with neither dominating. It’s sweet, but not cloying. The ginseng lends the usual slightly fuzzy mouthfeel. Me, I’d prefer it without the liquorice, but if you like the stuff, you’ll probably like this tea.

Ginseng also raises blood pressure.

Shoot. Did not know that. Thanks very much for telling me. I really like ginseng oolong. I’ll have to save it for once in a very great while.

You are welcome. I’ve been doing a great deal of research on this. Hibiscus is a good one to drink if this is an issue.
